For you next outdoor adventure in B.C.’s South Cariboo, check out these provincial parks.
BRIDGE CREEK FALLS
For those looking to take a quick walk, there’s a trail on the south side of Centennial Park near the parking lot that leads to the Bridge Creek Falls. The falls are undoubtedly among the most accessible in the South Cariboo and should be doable for most people including small children. There are no rails or fences, however, so it’s best to keep a close eye.
CANIM AND MAHOOD FALLS
The Canim and Mahood Falls are perhaps a bit more off the beaten path than most of the options on this list but the walk is highly recommended. It’s a nice trail and the falls are among the best, if not the best, in the South Cariboo. There’s not much of an incline on the trail but unlike most of the options listed here, a 16 bear bell wouldn’t go amiss.
MOUNT BEGBIE LOOKOUT
Between 70 Mile House and 100 Mile House, you’ll find the Mount Begbie Lookout. The lookout is open to the public with some washrooms located at the bottom. There are no other spots in the South Cariboo where you can look as far as from the top of the lookout. The trail itself switchbacks up and while relatively short is still a decent workout. For those into photography, a telephoto lens wouldn’t go amiss when you’re on top.
100 MILE MARSH
By far the tamest of the options here, the 100 Mile marsh is popular with bird enthusiasts, seniors or just to stretch your legs. With it being right beside the South Cariboo Visitor Centre in 100 Mile House, it’s also a good place to ask for more hiking options if you’ve not yet quite found what you’re looking for.
